Default Unable to cast object of type 'TheBeerHouseSection

I can't seem to get this to work I keep getting an error with regards to:

public readonly static TheBeerHouseSection Settings =
  (TheBeerHouseSection)WebConfigurationManager.GetSe ction("theBeerHouse");

error:
Unable to cast object of type 'TheBeerHouseSection' to type 'TheBeerHouseSection'.

in debug mode I can see the values but for some reason the Settings Variable goes to null before being able to call any of the properties read from the webconfig file!!!

This is certainly a weird one.

I can't say if this relates directly to this issue, but I had a project that had a very similar issue with a masterpage.

I solved it by by clearing the Visual Studio temp files, which are created during the compile process.

It's normally caused by having double declarations, which means an extra temp assembly, as Lee pointed out. This can also happen if an extra source code file gets into the app_code folder.

Not quite sure how the issue was resolved, but I just moved the offending code out of the App_Code folder recompiled and then re inserted the code, it works now.

I had the exact same problem, but I couldn't solve yet.

This is the exception

System.TypeInitializationException was unhandled by user code
  Message="The type initializer for 'MyTheBeerHouse.MB.TheBeerHouse.Globals' threw an exception."
  Source="MyTheBeerHouse"
  TypeName="MyTheBeerHouse.MB.TheBeerHouse.Globals"
  StackTrace:
       at MyTheBeerHouse.MB.TheBeerHouse.UI.BasePage.OnPreIn it(EventArgs e) in D:\Visual Studio 2005\LIVRO WebSite Programming\MyTheBeerHouse\MyTheBeerHouse\App_Code \BasePage.vb:line 10
       at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

Please, if someone could help me to solve this problem, I'll appreciate !!!
